Mention Bien
Ernest Manganel Award


This is a retrospective of my work, a deeper visualisation of my dissertation and an extension of my research. Through the metaphor of a brain forest where several works, characters, spaces and objects take place and coexist. The body is also integrated as a form of landscape. An ecosystem filled with information where the work reveals its creation. 


Through the fascination of bodily evolution and decay, we discover figurative and chimerical pictorial environments that explore the relationship between the imaginary and maternal bonds.


In the words of Romain Gary in his book Promise at Dawn: “With maternal love, life makes you a promise at dawn that it never keeps.”
